Last December, she wrote a review of the Goodwill store on Robbins Road in Grand Haven, next door to the Secretary of State office and near the D&W grocery store.
It may have been a year ago, but little has changed, so the review is still valuable.
McDaniel gives the store a 4 out of 5 rating.

"I've been going to this store for years, but first impressions upon walking in are that the store is clean and well-organized," she wrote in December 2011. "Unlike some other thrift stores, they do not have "tag sales" — everything is priced as marked with barcode. Sometimes the stickers are annoying and hard to remove from housewares. Also, like many other places, shoes are marked with silver on the sole to indicate price (try pencil eraser to take care of this)."

McDaniel said a plus is that Goodwill gets leftover new clearance items from Target, so the houseware brands and clothing/shoes like Merona are often on the shelves.

"This store is an awesome place to buy shoes and clothes," she wrote. "Everything is clean and in great shape. Bags and belts are also nice. Kids clothes, accessories, toys, videos and books are all priced decently and usually in quite good shape."
